What happens if your flight is delayed and lands after the Covid-19 curfew?
Passengers on board two delayed Mango Airlines flights were issued with letters by the airline on Sunday evening after the aircraft landed past the current 9pm curfew.
The JE157 and JE278 flights to Cape Town and Johannesburg were delayed due to technical reasons.
